Most people only fantasize about their dream job. I have been blessed to live it. Ewenique Yarns is such a special place. It is a place where creativity and challenges are encouraged. It is a safe-haven for so many. I have felt God’s presence many times – from Harriet’s genuine laughter to the generosity of our shawl ministry. More than once, friends fighting cancer have come for tea, making it their first trip out without their wigs. How special.
Teaching the art of knitting and crocheting has been a passion of mine for 30 years. My love of fine fibers and acceptance of life’s snags in our work has been communicated. Change is good. It allows for growth. So with a bit of mixed emotions, I have decided not to renew my lease – or to relocate. The economy is not easy for small businesses. We live in a world where things are delivered over night, to our doorstep, and often at a cheaper price.
Many people have made Ewenique Yarns the wonderful place it is. Steve has put in more weekend hours than stitches in a sweater. My coworkers, especially Priscilla, have been so flexible and so reliable. Thanks for having my back, as I have always admitted to being “the weakest link.” I am grateful for the many volunteers. Thanks for stepping in. And finally – my customers – loyalty is everything. You have witnessed three great kids turning into responsible young adults. You were with me through the death of my mom, Steve’s mom, and my dog. Thank you.
Look for me around town. With love and fondness,
